Frequent business travellers know the pain of modern air travel: luggage restrictions, lost luggage or waiting at the baggage carousel; these nuisances can upset the most carefully planned itinerary.
Now, recall the timeless era of upper-class ocean voyages that come with steamer trunks.
Çirağan Palace Kempinski Istanbul now offers a stylish alternative to make modern day travel more enjoyable than ever.
For guests who visit Istanbul frequently, the hotel offers steamer trunks custom-made to have their wardrobe dry-cleaned, pressed stored and ready-to-wear for their next visit.
Designed and manufactured by the Turkish firm M&B Leather Saraciye, the trunks include three spacious drawers for shirts, blouses, shoes and other items, along with hangers for suits and dresses.
The trunks operate like safes whereby guests receive keys to ensure total security and privacy. These luxury trunks can be rented weekly, monthly, three-monthly or annually.
Guests can also benefit from a privileged 20% discount for laundry services.
“Having a ‘private wardrobe’ provides a seamless, stress-free pied-à-terre for our guests. This is a personalised service complete with a unique design that pays homage to the days when people travelled in sumptuous ocean liners where trunks became both a status symbol and a kind of amended wardrobe for a long trans-Atlantic sea voyage. In this fast-paced modern age, we pay tribute to the spirit of luxury travel and regal living – which fits in perfectly with our hotel’s ethos,” commented Mr. Ralph Radtke, General Manager of the Çirağan Palace Kempinski Istanbul.
